I think you can do that using PowerQuery. See the example given at, http://markvsql.com/2015/01/power-query-decathlon-beginner-08-error-handling/

I’m importing it from a table that stores user entries in a format like “xxxxxxx, mm/dd/yyyy”. We have pulled out the date like entry into a new column as text. Once we did that, we tried to format it and found bogus entries like “2/30/2015″ or “do/nt/know”. I’d like to validate the entries as “valid dates” before putting them into a column, and if they’re invalide stick the on 01/01/2015.

Suggestions?

I’ve created a “Role” within the model and added users & the DAX filter query that trims the results of the logged in user via a user/Region bridge table. E.g.: Base table has a region column and the DAX query resolves the user’s region is Boston, so only Boston rows appear.

While this produces trimmed results while testing the tabular model within VS & SSMS against the model, how does this get properly integrated within the Excel workbook? Hosting on SharePoint, I’ve created a refresh schedule and tested using different test account credentials that are associated with different regions. The only way I can get the refreshed results to reflect the trimmed results is to include the “Roles” property within the Excel workbook’s connection string. I realize this isn’t the secured method to get the desired results but have not got this working otherwise.

Thanks.
Ron

That way you can select a single time period and see all the values you need for that period. Sorting should be possible there as well.

Hope that helps,
Kasper

many ways to skin this cat :). You can also solve this in a measure using Rankx( crossjoin(all(TBL_Plants[RegionID]), all(TBL_Plants[SiteID])),

[CostPerUnit]) or even something like RankX(Summarize(all(T), T[col1], T[col2]), …

Please find a screenshot. I’ve done a simple pivot here, The data is in a sheet not the data model. Essentially I want to remove the yellow column and sort by the green column.
